Bartlett Research Addressing Climate Change Exhibited at Arup's Fitzrovia HQ
4 July 2019
Three Bartlett Master’s programmes have contributed their research to an exhibition that explores new forms of practice, open to the public throughout the summer.
Students from three Bartlett Master’s programmes have proposed new forms of practice to help tackle climate change and other environmental issues for the future of the built environment:
- Design for Manufacture MArch
- Bio-Integrated Design (Bio-ID) MArch/MSci
- Design for Performance & Interaction MArch
Their work will be on display at Arup in an exhibition Drivers of Change: New Forms of Practice. Examples of new forms of practice include robotic incremental sheet forming, the substitution of biomaterials for concrete and designing in four dimensions.
The exhibition also marks the launch of the latest edition of Drivers of Change, a publication developed by Arup’s foresight team to raise awareness about global issues affecting the future of the built environment, such as depleting natural resources and the need to improve urban food systems.
On 12 July, Arup will host a panel discussion between Bartlett and Arup speakers, investigating the issues raised by the publication and exhibition.
Drivers of change: New Forms of Practice will run from 15 July until 13 September 2019 at Arup, 8-13 Fitzroy Street, London, W1T 4BQ.
The exhibition is curated by Ruairi Glynn, Programme Director, Design for Performance & Interaction MArch, and Jennifer Greitschus, Head of Exhibitions at Arup.
